Continuing on page 6 it goes into assembling the ailerons onto the wings, the states
on page 7 step #10 " Install the right aileron, elevator, and the rudder using the
same technique as the ailerons." I suppose if one is doing a twin ARF they should
have enough knowledge to know how to do hinge install on tail surfaces but to have
a bit more description would have been prefered...
In the next post I will do the wings but for now I went ahead and did the tail surfaces..
The hinge slots are not deep enough for the 1" lenght as shown in the attached pic.. This
is something that should have been addressed in the manual that hinges were to be installed
by the 1" being the width, going into the slot by with the Â¾" deminsion... The Â¾ attachment
is more than adaquate to hold the elevator and rudder...
In this post the covering is shown cut,, hinge placement on vertical, and rudder attached to
the vertical fin.. It really is pretty easy to figure out as long as one does as manual states
in the beginning,, TEST FIT PARTS
prior to use of glue..
Something that I do with CA hinges is to use a crayon to mark the center of the hinge. I run it
once in one direction then once in the other and then use a lighter to lightly heat the applied
crayon to 'melt it in' so the CA won't adhere and should allow hinge to flex better.. And of course,
I use crayons that have smiley faces because I am a happy person having fun..
